Voluntary assisted dying laws

July 29, 2017

This afternoon, I and other Labor MLAs launched a petition calling on the federal Government to restore the ACT's ability to determine its own laws regarding voluntary assisted dying. 
Victoria, NSW, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia are actively debating voluntary assisted dying laws. But in the ACT the topic is moot because for 20 years we've been gagged by federal legislation made by people who don't represent us. 
To have a genuine debate about this important topic we MUST be given back the ability to debate it in our own parliament. Please add your voice here --> taracheyne.com.au/RestoreTerritoryRights
